Blogging Report Card

I've been consistently blogging for just over 3 months now and I thought I would share my first report card with you.


SCALE

O Outstanding
S Satisfactory
N needs Improvement
U Unsatisfactory


Concentrates on task at hand : U
Comments: Robbie focuses on everything EXCEPT the task at hand. She watches DVR'd shows, texts Big Yankee, opens 17 screens on her laptop, eats pretzels and string cheese (often weaving the string cheese through the pretzels like a work of art), daydreams about what she DIDN'T accomplish each day.

Uses time wisely: U
Comments: Robbie has 39 43 unfinished drafts..since October. It doesn't matter if 43 is one of her favorite numbers ...she needs to finish that shit up.


Is Dependable: U
Comments: If by dependable you mean she will start many things and finish few, then, yes Robbie meets this criteria. She can always be counted on to incomplete tasks.

Manages own time: U
Comments: Mismanages own time would be a more accurate description of her current level of functioning.


Shows initiative: O
Comments: Robbie excels at taking the initial blogging step.With no planning whatsoever she took the plunge. It's all those that follow the first step that cause her problems.

Is organized: U
Comments: Umm, hell no! A quick glance at her blog reveals that she lost the garage door opener in late September. She has 2 sets of car keys and is always missing one. She calls her cell phone at least once a day to find it (when she can find the home phone to cal lit). Robbie sporadically participates in memes and link-ups since she can't seem to remember when they are. Clearly she has no blogging schedule.

Exercises Self Control: U
Comments: No. Just NO!

Works and Plays cooperatively : S
Comments: This is an emerging skill for Robbie. She is showing some initiative in reading new blogs and has begun to increase her comments. She interacts frequently on Twitter.



How would you do on a bloggy report card? Any tips on how to improve my blogging grades?

The Bold Blend said...

Great post!

Robbie K said...

thanks....it was fun to write!

Robbie K said...

Thanks! Looks like I won't get any money for these grades :)

Robbie K said...

What you didn't know there was a grade for this? Weren't you paying attention in class or were you texting? :)

The Preppy Girl in Pink said...

This was the perfect post from a hilarious previous teacher! Too funny!

Jennifer said...

Ha ha! I give you an A on commenting on other people's blogs and being an all-around awesome person.

Robbie K said...

Thank you very much! I'm gonna take that A and stick on the fridge for all to see!

Robbie K said...

Thanks :) Here's hoping I can bring my grades up by next grading period!

Mommy Inconsistent said...

Great post...Is there a grade below "U"? I'm not doing too well these days with self-control...but then again I didn't buy the oreo cookies that are currently haunting me from inside my kitchen cupboard!

Life As Wife said...

Crap we're being graded?

I'm probably failing... But at least I'm friends with the cool kids right?

Carrie - ASassyRedhead.com said...

Don't be grading me until I've studied.

Or cheated.

Cause goodness knows, I'll figure out how. Even at blogging.

=)

Gia said...

Hahhaha that's cute. OSNU is much kinder than the A-F scale.

Poppy said...

Ha, this is great! I'm not sure how long you have been blogging -- but it has taken 2 years for me to start to get my act together. It's too much fun to blog distracted :)

Robbie K said...

lol...I think anything below a U and there's a visit to the Blogging Principal. Oreo are evil goodness that are impossible to resist!

Robbie K said...

Sitting at the cool kids table is waaaay more important than grades!

Robbie K said...

You study? aww damn...not sure I can be friends with one of THOSE kind of people! :)

Robbie K said...

Yeah seeing a bunch of big fat F's on my report card might have been enough to make me quit :)

Robbie K said...

I'm not quite 4 months into it and am soo glad to know that I still have 20 months before I need to get my shit together.

Kristen said...

Great post. I'm pretty sure my report card is crummy too.... I suck at so many of the things about blogging.

Robbie K said...

There is just so much to learn..and so much to be distracted by.

Thanks for linking up to finding the funny! :)
